COMMENTS
  Budda Baker, ARI: Baker has a shot to reach 100 solos in 2021. That's not easy for a DB.

  Jamal Adams, SEA: If he can play a full season, he's worth drafting s one of the first IDPs taken.

  Jordan Poyer, BUF: Poyer's numbers remain impressive, even with the team's defense improving as a unit each year.

  Jeremy Chinn, CAR: Had an amazing rookie season filled with highlights, but could regress statistically.

  Jessie Bates III, CIN: Bates has been getting it done in Cincy and is the best IDP option on the team.

  Derwin James, LAC: The injuries keep destroying his upside, but it's there.

  Landon Collins, WAS: I'm worried he might not be 100 percent recovering from a torn Achilles, but it's not a bad gamble.

  Kevin Byard, TEN: I love taking him right before everybody else remembers they could use him.

  Vonn Bell, CIN: He's the second best IDP option in Cincy.

  Justin Simmons, DEN: Simmons has struggled to stay healthy but 2021 could be his year.

  Malcolm Jenkins, NO: Another solid veteran who gets burnt occasionally but posts great tackle numbers.

  Antoine Winfield Jr., TB: Second-generation NFL star off to a great start to his career.

  Harrison Smith, MIN: He's getting up there in age, but is still worth a look.

  Kareem Jackson, DEN: A veteran who is a consistent IDP performer and gets overlooked.

  Logan Ryan, NYG: Ryan just fills up the stat sheet every week, and he seems to like NY.

  John Johnson, CLE: A new team could mean reduced tackle numbers, as the scorers are different in every stadium.

  Minkah Fitzpatrick, PIT: One of the best DBs, they still throw at him a lot and he makes plays almost every time.

  Darnell Savage, GB: A solid DB in a great spot for another big statistical season.

  Marlon Humphrey, BAL: He did a lot of the heavy lilting in 2020, but is a bit of a risk with more players healthy.

  Khari Willis, IND: Solid young player without too many flaws.

  Kenny Moore, IND: I really like Young's upside, but he's a bit inconsistent.

  Richie Grant, ATL: The rookie is the top DB in the 2021 draft and could be an instant game changer on an Atlanta defense that desperately needs one.

  Trevon Moehrig, LV: Could be a big splash right off the bat in the NFL.

  Trevon Diggs, DAL: A good tackler for a young DB, Diggs could be the best one they have in the secondary.
